Abstract:

  • Panel:  @China, Virtually Speaking: A Virtual Roundtable Discussion on Emergent Practices in China

    Home­Shop began as a store­front res­i­dence and artist ini­tia­tive in Bei­jing, 2008. Lo­cated in the cen­tre of Bei­jing on one of its old hu­tong al­ley­ways, the space and its win­dow front are used as the be­gin­ning points from which to ex­am­ine ways of re­lay­ing be­tween pub­lic and pri­vate, the com­mer­cial and pure ex­change as such. Artists, de­sign­ers and thinkers come to­gether via mul­ti­ple, in­ter­wo­ven se­ries of small-scale ac­tiv­i­ties, in­ter­ven­tions and doc­u­men­tary ges­tures, processes by which Home­Shop serves as an open plat­form to ques­tion ex­ist­ing mod­els of eco­nomic and artis­tic pro­duc­tion. Daily life, work and the com­mu­nity be­come ex­plo­rations of mi­crop­o­lit­i­cal pos­si­bil­ity, and of work­ing to­gether.
